This Morning in Bog
The worst thing about this Jerome Williams injury is he has great promise as a blog subject, what with his Hawaiian music thing. Meanwhile, John Patterson played catch for the first time and was encouraged, but it's not like they really need him. This pitching staff is unbeatable. Twenty-one runs over the past seven games? That's the best in the NL East. If you had given me 10-1 odds before the season that the Nats staff would allow the fewest runs in the NL East over any seven-game span this season, I'm not sure I would have taken it.
The Caps' signing of Nicklas Backstrom might not be surprising, but it does have the bloggers blogging. Mike Vogel at the Caps site has much more on this, quoting the Swedish national coach saying Backstrom needs to get more intense and explosive. And D.C. Optimist calls him "Stycke av Pussel," or "piece of the puzzle," he thinks.
Adam Schefter doesn't waste any time in suggesting that Jason Cambpell has looked Pro Bowl good in OTA's. Seriously, there's nothing better than being a Skins fan in May. I'll get on board this Pro Bowl train, why not?
Also, apparently the team's new radio frequency in the Hampton Roads area is "as erratic as Mark Brunell's arm." It's hard for me to believe as savvy an organization as the Redskins would possibly subject loyal fans to a less-than-stellar radio signal, so I'll assume this is gonna get worked out.
Check out This Could Be The Year, an open letter asking Ted Lerner to donate money to D.C. schools if attendance rises about last year's level. This is the perfect year for bizarre proposals sent to the entire local sports media community, besides bloggers. (Via Deuce of Davenport via Capital Punishment)
Sidney Ponson's release means he's now free to start for the Orioles, or possibly the Nats, this weekend. (Nationals Enquirer, and this is made up, for the record.)
Apparently Gilbert has publicly disparaged the video game he's now promoting. (Gilbertology)
